    Red/Whte/Blue - Boy Grad - easy - FMQ Primitive!

    Pattern: Cheaper by the Dozen - with a scrappy border from the leftovers plus a strip or two from my stash. This is my "go to" pattern for easy, fast projects.

    Fabric: Assorted collected FQ's. Most from the Houston Quilt Show, but a few are from Jo-ann's, and a couple from the LQS. I've already washed it with a color catcher and ... nothing. I was so surprised at how well it came out. I sometimes iron them after they are washed to make them look fresher, but this one is going just as it came out. Hurray!

    Quilting: Stars. Very lop-sided, folk art style stars. I figure I'll look back at this age/stage and call it my "Primitive Period".

    Backing: a navy blue sheet from Wal-mart

    Binding: Brought over from back

    Size: 60 X 70 (Approx.)

    This is for a grad from my church.

    That's a great grad-boy-quilt. I'll have to bookmark it to remember. Thanks for the photos.

    This particular graduate walked the stage, but will stay in school until he's 21. I know he'll love it. I taught him as a 4th and 5th grader and he's been a church friend as well.

    When I do a shop hop I like to collect fat quarters. Ones suitable for patriotic quilts are part of what I like to pick up. Also like to get red/white, black/white and other combinations of those 3 colors. Makes it easy to throw a quilt together should the need arise.

    This pattern has you cut all the fq's into the same 6 pieces. So stack them high and cut them fast. You make two blocks and there's no decision making about which way to turn them - you just follow the layout on the pattern and DONE. Awesome for when the fabric can stand alone and for fast, fast, fast!
    So many quilts, so little time.
